Ever think your shopping trolley looks a little boring? Fear not!
We’re here to show you all the latest, amazing, new creations that are sure to transform your life (well, your eating life at least).
So what has caught our eye this week?
Bourbon’s Chocolate Slices
YES. You can now get chocolate in slices – just like cheese! These mind-boggling slices are made by Japanese sweet company Bourbon and have certainly got the internet talking. Each pack contains 60 slices which can be popped on top of bread, pancakes, banana, in a wrap – you name it! Oh and each slice contains 1.3% of alcohol. We know.
Tesco chocolate and cherry sandwiches

Head down to your local Tesco and you may find one of these sitting in the sandwich aisle. On the one hand, chocolate and cherry mascarpone on cinnamon bread doesn’t sound too bad, and on the other, the brown sludge filling kind of makes us want to run away. We might just sit on the fence for a little while with this one… !
Chocolate covered Lay’s

We’ve spotted these oldies making their rounds on Facebook again and we just had to get sharing. Launched back in 2013 in USA, these chocolate covered crisps have slowly but surely been making their way around. Available in Canada early 2015, we have a feeling they’ll be coming to the UK pretty soon. Fingers crossed!

Ah! We couldn’t be more excited. Pringles USA are launching brand new flavours for the festive period and they all sound dreamy! Say hello to Cinnamon Sugar, White Chocolate, Salted Caramel, Pecan Pie and Milk Chocolate flavours. Our minds are boggled and our taste buds are tempted. Please bring them over to the UK. Pretty please with crisps on top!
Mashed potato doughnuts
Erm, these doughnuts are made from mashed potato. MIND BLOWN. Sold in The Holy Donut in Portland, these potato based pastries are certainly causing a stir! And what makes these donuts even crazier, is that they come with savoury fillings and flavours too including bacon and cheese. We like!
Did you know that blue raspberries are actually a thing! YES, they really are. These rare berries are in fact more of a purple colour but can come in a range of shades like above. Blue raspberry is a common flavoring for candy, snack foods, syrups and soft drinks. We’re now looking at those blue Sush Puppies you used to get in a whole different light!
Reese’s Pieces burger
No, your eyes do not deceive you. This jaw-dropping burger is crammed with all sorts including beef, bacon, onion rings and Reese’s Pieces cups. We don’t know whether to run the other way or shove it in our mouths. Decisions, decisions!
EAT’s pigs in blankets
If your Christmas dinner isn’t complete without pigs in blankets piled high on the plate, you’re going to love this latest news! Lunchtime restaurant, EAT will be selling them from the 2nd November. Form an orderly queue people! And if that’s not all, they’ll be selling other festive treats too including two newbies – Turkey, Bacon and Stuffing Pie and Spicy Brownie Hot Chocolate.

Giant crumpets. We repeat! GIANT CRUMPETS! Can you tell we’re a little bit too excited about this latest creation? Warburtons have certainly pushed the boat out to make these giant, face-sized crumpets. We cannot wait to smother them in butter and jam and Nutella and…
(Psst! They’re available in ASDA, Sainsbury’s, Morrisons and Iceland at 69p for pack of two)
Deep fried lasagne
Erm, yes this is a real thing. It’s a deep-fried lasagne in a garlic brioche bun. Let’s think about that for a second. Mmmm… Served at burger diner, Solita Restaurants, this amazing creation has certainly turned a few heads and got the world of Twitter buzzing. Time to hop on a train to Manchester!
Pigs in blankets Pringles
We might be a bit late to the party on this one but our minds are boggled by this festive flavour of Pringles – pigs in blankets! We LOVE the idea. Don’t you?
Prosecco crisps and brusselmole
That’s right, you’re not seeing things, it does say Prosecco crisps! M&S are bringing out some really festive treats this Christmas like these winter berry and Prosecco crisps, which are dusted with pink glitter. They can be enjoyed with brusselmole – their take on guacamole, but made with (yes, you guessed it!) brussel sprouts instead.
M&S Billionaire Buillon Bar
This M&S gold bar is a chocoholic’s dream! Picture this – layers of salted caramel sauce, caramel mousse and chocolate ganache on shortbread crumbs and enclosed in a shimmering gold case… They’ve got us drooling simply at the thought of this dessert! Please excuse us while we run to the nearest M&S!
Kit Kat croissant
Kit Kat fans, are you ready to meet your new best friend? Say hello to the Kit Kat croissant. This genius idea was thought up by Pronto cafe in Japan and has become one big hit with the locals. You can have your pastry warm so the Kit Kit is soft and gooey inside or cold so they’ve still got their crunch. Either way, we really wish we were living in Japan right now. Ah!
Photo: Bounty (trademark of Mars 2015.)
If you’re a fan of that classic chocolate, the Bounty bar, you’re going to love this latest creation – Bounty spread. This milk based spread is packed with coconut flakes and tastes just like the real thing. We want it – on toast, crumpets, in a cake, on a cake. Mmmm…
No, your eyes do not deceive you. Doritos have launched a brand new packet of crisps that has taken the internet by storm. Meet the rainbow! Launched in support of the It Gets Better Project, these mind-boggling chips sold out in within hours so unfortunately you’ll have to wait a little while before you can try them! We’re next in line…
Ben & Jerry’s pumpkin cheesecake ice cream
Ben & Jerry’s have launched a new flavour and it’s just in time for Halloween! This new pumpkin cheesecake flavour (yes, doesn’t it sound dreamy?!) has a sweet cinnamon spiced pumpkin taste along with a famous cookie swirl. This newbie will be available in shops this October.
Jaffa cake flavour spread
Photo: Twitter @asda

Cadbury Vegemite chocolate bar
Photo: @CadburyAU #vegemite #vegemitechocolate
Meet Cadbury’s latest creation, the Vegemite chocolate bar made with, you guessed it, Vegemite! Alongside this mind-boggling flavour choice, Cadbury have launched three other new flavours: salted caramel, peanut and pretzel and golden toffee – which all sound a little more down to earth than VEGEMITE! It’s a love/hate relationship and team GoodtoKnow are split in their opinion on the combo. Looks like we’re just going to have to try some before we make any real judgment, don’t you agree?!
Guinness black sauce
Photo: @GuinnessGB #blacksauce #Guinness
Calling all Guinness lovers! Your BBQ burgers, ribs and chicken kebabs are about to get a serious pimping with Guinness’ latest creation, black sauce.

With strawberries and raspberries slowly creeping into season, we welcome the return of the bizarre fruit that had us all boggled last year – the bubbleberries! These sweet little berries look exactly like a strawberry but taste more like a bubble gum. We can’t wait to try them!
Hula Hoops Puft
Eek! We’re a little bit too excited about this next newbie. Hula Hoops have launched a new crisp variety – the puft! These hoops are much lighter and crispier than your average Hula Hoops and come in different flavours too including original, cheese and salt and vinegar. We want some right NOW!

Photo: Cadbury / Rex features
Yes, this is actually a thing. For the first time in over 100 years, Cadbury has created a super sharing chocolate bar complete with seven different flavours to match all of Cadbury Dairy Milk’s hero variants including Daim and Fruit and Nut. The bad news? Only 50 bars will be made – it’s like Willy Wonka’s golden ticket saga all over again! But keep your eyes peeled on the @CadburyUK Twitter feed as they’ll be giving some away to a few lucky winners.
Photo: Doritos.co.uk @DoritosUK
If you’re a fan of spice, you’re certainly going to want to play this enticing game of Doritos Roulette! Doritos are taking our favourite triangle to the next level and introducing the hottest ever crisp in the UK, which measures a whopping 78,000 units on the Scoville Heat Scale – serious stuff! Hidden among the handfuls of tangy cheese-flavoured chips in each bag lies a selection of fiery Doritos that are 10 times hotter than a jalapeño pepper. Are you ready to take on the challenge?!
Photo: Twitter @Fortnums
Are you ready to have your minds boggled? This little Scotch egg may just look like an ordinary Scotch egg but it is in fact a chocolate ‘Chotch’ egg. Made by Fortnum & Mason, this egg is wrapped in 55% Valrhona dark chocolate, venison and coated in breadcrumbs. It’s an Easter special available from 31st March to 6th April in Fortnum’s Wine Bar so go, go, go…

Photo: First Kitchen Japan
Calling all KitKat fans, have you heard about this latest creation? The KitKat sandwich! This delicious little number is all the rage in Japan made with a soft white bun, orange peel and whipped cream – random, we know!
Well, here’s a different way to make your fry-up a little more entertaining! We know this isn’t a product of sort but we were pretty amazed by the idea of breakfast Jenga and just had to share. Something for the weekend?
Apple pie and carrot flavoured KitKat
Photo: KitKat Japan

£33k chocolate Easter bunny
Photo: Twitter @VeryFirstTo @77Diamonds @MartinChiffers
Don’t let the kids see THIS Easter bunny! Made with 75% Tanzania Origin chocolate, weighing approximately 5kgs and measuring 38cm high, this bunny (made by award-winning Chocolatier and International Pastry Consultant, Martin Chiffers) costs a mad £33,000 and has real diamonds for eyes! And if that’s not shocking enough, it contains 548,000 calories. Yes, we’ve just fallen off our chairs too!
Photo: Yowk, £1.49, available May 2015 in most supermarkets
Have you heard about the latest craze – the Yowk? It’s an amazing little product that makes us feel as though we’ve been zoomed off into the future. It’s a readymade boiled egg complete with an egg cup, breadstick soldiers for dipping, salt and pepper, plus a spoon, so you can have your breakfast on the go! Interesting, eh?!

Orbi Yokohama museum’s frog burger
Photo: Orbi Yokohama museum via @JapaneseFood
We’re rather intrigued by this next foodie trend – the frog burger! Made by Orbi Yokohama museum in Japan, this frog burger sandwiches a deep fried frog in between black burger buns – say what?! We’re not sure if we’re completely disgusted or tempted to give it a taste, it’s a strange one that’s for sure!
Oh my. What do we have here? If you’re a crisp fanatic or popcorn addict, you might want to take a seat. Meet the Walkers MixUps, a new range with mixed up tastes, textures and shapes in every packet!

To celebrate the launch of Seattle’s Best Coffee in its restaurants, KFC has developing a unique range of coffee cups, which are 100% edible. The Scoff-ee Cup is made from biscuit, wrapped in sugar paper and lined with heat-resistant white chocolate. They had us at ‘scoff’!
Krispy Kreme meets Biscoff
Photo: Krispy Kreme website
Krispy Kreme fans, are you ready to meet the latest creation by the master doughnuters. We give you the Krispy Kreme Biscoff. If you love all things caramel, you’re going to want to try this beauty topped with crushed caramel biscuits, with a thick gooey caramel centre and more caramel goodness on top. Our mouths are watering at the thought!
Erm, Sweetos, anyone? We’re not sure about you but we think Cheetos may have taken this one step too far. We were all for the extra cheesy orange puffs but now they’re sweet and they’re covered in… cinnamon?! Our minds are boggled.
Pilgrims Choice cheese Easter egg
This is the cheesiest Easter egg we’ve ever laid our eyes on. They say chocolate and cheese do go hand in hand and we’re thinking any cheese fan would be up for trying this latest creation by Pilgrims Choice. We’re not too convinced ourselves, but you should never judge a book by its cover!
KFC Double Down Dog
Photo: Twitter KFC Philippines
It’s a meat eater’s dream, it’s the treat you deserve stumbling home from the pub after a night out, it’s the KFC Double Down Dog! If you’re a true KFC fan, you’re probably going to think that this hot dog wrapped in crispy, deep-fried chicken is the bee’s knees – we’re a little torn. The idea sounds good but the calories and the unhealthy factor has left us boggled. Decisions, decisions!
Marmite Easter egg
Photo: Twitter Marmite
You’re either going to love this idea or hate it. Marmite has launched its own Easter eggs for 2015. They’re pulling out all the stops to get the nation loving this weird yet wonderful substance. We can see Marmite and chocolate working quite well together, can you?

Where to buy: Most supermarkets nearer Easter time, £5.
Red Velvet Oreos
Photo: Twitter Oreos
With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, it’s no wonder that the clever bods at Oreos have pulled out all the stops to make these impressive Red Velvet Oreos – with cream cheese flavoured creme!

Get the 9th of March pencilled in the diary and we’ll meet you in the nearest Aldi to grab a jar!
Creme Egg stuffed crust pizza
Photo: Twitter Pizza Hut UK
Don’t panic, don’t panic! This isn’t actually something you can buy, it’s a rather crazy idea posted on Pizza Hut’s Twitter page but that hasn’t stopped it causing utter chaos. It has also left us feeling rather boggled too, we just can’t decide whether we absolutely love the idea or if we detest the idea entirely. We’re just SO torn. What do you think?! Has the Creme Egg found a new calling?
Creme Egg fans make sure you check out our weird and wonderful Creme Egg creations before you head off!
Photo: Facebook Paul A Young
Paul A Young’s caramelised garlic truffles have just blown our minds. Who would have thought that such a savoury (and strong!) flavour like garlic would match so well with chocolate? Don’t knock it until you’ve tried it, that’s what we say.
Photo: Facebook Blue Hill Yogurt
No, your eyes are not deceiving you. This really is carrot yogurt! Blue Hill Yogurt have gone all out with their latest creations – vegetable yogurts including flavours such as carrot (pictured above), sweet potato, beetroot and even parsnip.
We’re all for new inventions and these pots of goodness have certainly got our attention.

Photo: Facebook Haagen-Dazs US
We might be late to the party with this one but Haagen-Dazs green tea ice cream has got the office talking.
We’re now on the hunt to find this tea infused beauty – who’s with us?!
Wine ice cream
Photo: Facebook Mercer’s Dairy
Three words: Wine ice cream. Whoever thought of this ingenius idea, we salute you! You truly won’t be able to look at your average scoop in the same way again.
This wine-tastic idea is proving rather popular in Mercer’s Dairy New York. The 8 new flavours include Cherry Merlot, Chocolate Cabernet, Port, Spice, Peach White Zinfandel, Red Raspberry Chardonnay, Riesling and Strawberry Sparkling. Spoons at the ready, people!

Photo: 400 Gradi
If you love cheese and you love pizza, you really must feast your eyes on this latest creation by 400 Gradi, a pizza restaurant in Melbourne, Australia. This mouth-watering pizza is made with 99, yes 99, cheeses including buffalo mozzarella, goat’s cheese, ricotta, raspadura and so on. It’s any cheese lovers heaven!
Christmas dinner popcorn
Say what? Christmas dinner popcorn?! If you fancy trying something new this year it’s Christmas dinner popcorn all the way. This festive box from Selfridges is the latest craze. Flavours include turkey, cranberry sauce, chipolatas, stuffing, carrots and sprouts. Popcorn anyone?
Christmas dinner burger
Photo: Instagram Brass Pig Barbecue Cafe
We’re are SO excited about this festive burger made by Brass Pig Barbecue Cafe in Southport. It’s all we’ve ever dreamed of and more! It’s made with a beef patty, smoked turkey, stuffing, cranberry sauce, gravy, brioche bun and wait for it… two pigs in blankets towering on top. We think we might have to ditch the usual Christmas dinner this year and opt for this bad boy instead! Who’s with us?!
Doritos Crunch Crust pizza
Photo: pizzahutau on Instagram
Our minds are officially blown by the latest creation from Pizza Hut – a Dorito crust pizza. Say what?! If you’re hoping to get a sample of this bad boy it’s time to hop on a plane down under to sunny old Australia as this crisp-tastic pizza is only available there (at the moment!).
So, let us tell you more about this mind boggling pizza – the crust is bejewelled with crushed Dorito chips and the inside of the crust is stuffed with mozzarella so you get a nacho flavoured sensation when you bite into.
It’s naughty and nice all in one!
Craving pizza now? So are we! See all of our favourite pizza recipes here.
Nutella Lasange (the ‘Nutelasagne’!)
Photo: Robicelli’s Bakery
What? A lasagne made with Nutella – erm, where can we get one? Unfortunately this godly creation was made by Robicelli’s bakery in New York so we probably won’t travel all that way just to get it… probably…
If we can’t get the original, the owner has thankfully given us some clues as to how to recreate it ourselves.
Allison Robicelli said: “Layers of buttery lasagna noodles, cannoli custard, copious amounts of Nutella, crushed roasted hazelnuts and chopped chocolate, with some marshmallows on top for additional sweetness.”
Nutella heaven! If it sounds a little too tricky, these 10 glorious Nutella recipes instead.
We think the name sums it up quite nicely here – turkey and stuffing doughnuts do certainly sound weird. Tesco started the trend for savoury doughnuts earlier in the year with salt and vinegar and cheese and onion flavoured bites, but their festive edition may be a step too far? Never fear, turkey and stuffing aren’t physically inside the doughnut, the flavours are blended down into a seasoning for the outside of the dough.
Where to buy: Tesco
Custard Cream Spread
You know that luxurious creamy centre of a Custard Cream? The clever bods at Tesco have taken this and turned it into a spread. Not only perfect for toast and sandwiches, this delicious spread will also come in handy in your baking – you can make perfect homemade Custard Creams or rhubarb and custard cakes.
Where to buy: Tesco
Lotus Biscoff Spread
The super-sweet caramel flavour of a Lotus Biscoff biscuit is the dream for anyone with a sweet tooth and now it’s available in spread form! We’re already dreaming of the toasted sandwiches made with this delight… melted marshmallows, anyone?

Reese’s Pieces Spread
Video of the Week
Erm, what? Chocolate and peanut butter spread, in one? Sure, we may have tried to recreate the delicious flavour of Reese’s Pieces ourselves with chocolate spread and peanut butter but it’s never quite right.
Where to buy: Unfortunately this is currently only available in the US but we think if we shout loud enough, they’re sure to bring it out over here. PLEASE!
Peanut butter lover? This is the drink for you… yes that’s right. A peanut butter drink! Think of it like a hot chocolate but instead of chocolate, it’s peanut butter! Can you tell we’re excited about this one?
Where to buy: Waitrose
